    Default can't post images easily

    The vBulletin software has been acting strangely for me over the weekend. I have had to go to [Manage Attachements] to upload anything.

    The image posting mechanism always gives me fits, it despises Firefox.

    I have been using Chrome pretty much exclusively through this.

    Super old version of vBulletin even the SEO creator does not exist anymore on the provided domain.

    Discourse would be nice *wink* -> https://www.discourse.org/

    Haven't used attachments in forums for years.

    It's an extra step, but I always host images externally through imgur, and photobucket (when they were still free) before that. It takes care of a lot of attachment limitations.

    Yeah well, when you can pop into discourse, slack, teams, discord, or literally any other modern text communications service and simply PASTE screen grabs... well let's just say it improves the quality of the conversation drastically.

    I may be old enough to be good at this format, but that doesn't mean the format is good!

    Except down the road hosted images often are down.

    Same, same. As much as I love some nostalgia these days, vBulletin is pretty long in the tooth. No guarantees/ETA/etc., but the right people are aware and discussing some options for the future. Meetings are being had/ideas are sticking to walls/stay tuned..

    We've been talking about migrating forums to somethings shinier for years.. the task is not trivial though, as ideally we'd be migrating accounts and content that already exists. Forums are well used and well indexed by google. Challenging to lose all that and start from scratch.
